65g fowlr tank questions

I recently inherited my brothers 65g fowlr tank. My brother doesn't want it anymore so he gave it to me. I been learning the ins and outs of this tank slowly since he isn't helping me and is now overseas.

My tank is 65g
It has a Coralife 36 inch deluxe lunar series fixtures
A boju 65g protein skimmer (it's alright)
A marinelife 360 canister filter
Live rock (I don't know how many pounds but alot)
1 clownfish
2 yellowfin damsels
And 12 crabs 2 large snails

My questions are
1) what are good and beautiful fish that I can have in this tank to go with my clownfish and two damsels
2) is it a good idea to switch from a 65g to a smaller biocube? I am wondering if it will be easier to manage and cheaper in cost. I also want sone coral in the tank but I do not believe I have the right setup.

If u can help me out it be great thanks.

I have included a pic of my tank.... I'm still new and learning. My brothers tank was a mess before he gave it to me so I am trying to get it in tip top shape. If you have any suggestions please let me know 

I have a 65 gallon FOWLR setup myself.
1) You could keep blennies, hawkfish, certain puffers, it really depends on what you want.
2) Smaller tanks are harder to keep. I would get comfortable with the tank you have first.
It's been real AA.
